Business Opportunity We assist candidates who are interested to study, work and live in New Zealand. We help with student’s enrolment, funding through scholarships, Job search, visa process and information on the pathways to permanent residency. Based on migration profile generated by UNICEF of Malaysia, a steady growth in migration to first world country is clearly shown. Since there are strict migration policies in the countries like Australia, USA, UK and Canada, students are looking at other option and that is New Zealand.

New Zealand education is equally good. It is also internationally recognized. Gaining professional qualification in New Zealand is logical, with 1NZD – 2.78RM currency exchange rate. New Zealand is the current preferred migration location.

Our target market:

3) Students with Postgraduate qualification
4) Students with Masters qualification

Revenue / Business Model We earn income from every successful university placement. Commission received by Medway from University/College from the students referred or processed by SPI to be shared in the ration of 70:30 (70% SPI 30% Medway).

The commission from University/College is normally received 4-6 weeks after the student starts his course.

For the first 20 students, 20% on the net tuition fees. For 20 students up- commission of 25% and up of the net Tuition fees. Commission rate is negotiable depending on the number of students sent. Some private colleges offered a direct 40% agreement with Kharissa (SPI) alone. (No sharing with Medway)

10% of year 2 fee paid at the beginning of year 2. And 7% of year 3 fee paid at the beginning of year 3. From this income, Medway Education Consultant Pvt. Ltd absorbs 30% of our year 1 fee as they are assisting us on the administration work with universities and immigration.
